Brand Focus: MaxFactor

I have been thinking recently about doing these brand focus posts on my favourite products from certain brands. I absolutely love MaxFactor, it is definitely up there with my favourite brands including premium brands, it has some really great products with amazing quality at extremely reasonable prices. 

So I've put together all my favourite items from Maxfactor. First up I will start with base products, the Facefinity Primer is an absolute cult product for me. It is literally like velcro for your skin and keeps your makeup put all day. If on a day I don't use this primer my makeup starts to look a bit tired and starts to go patchy at the end of the day whereas on days that I do use this my makeup stays put all day and looks just as good at 6pm in the evening as it did at 7am in the morning when first applied. Next is the Skin Luminizer Foundation. You all know how much I love my dewy bases and this is no exception. This foundation has got a swirl of luminizing liquid running through it, so when dispensed it is evenly mixed into the foundation liquid and leaves a lovely, natural and subtle glow to the face giving that dewy finish. It is very thick in consistency but I quite like this with a foundation but I know some people can't get on with it. 

Next is the Masterpiece High Definition Mascara, I have this mascara in brown as for a day time look I like to wear brown mascara as I feel it gives a more natural and not so harsh finish/look to the eyes. This is THE best brown mascara I have come across to date. The bristles on the wand are plastic but really soft and there's loads of them so every single lash is covered. It gives a really natural long lash that looks perfect for daytime. 

These Creme Puff  Blushers have had some serious exposure over the past few months but they are pretty amazing. I have shades Seductive Pink which is a really pretty pale pink that looks super cute just on the apples of your cheeks and then Alluring Rose which unlike the name isn't really all that rosey. I would say it is more peach/bronze, I like to use this blush on the days when I'm bronzing it up and don't want pink on the cheeks but still want a bit of colour. 

Then lastly is the lips, these Color Elixir glosses are one of my favourite glosses. I have quite a few shades from this collection but have picked out my two favourites for this post. Polished Fuschia is a really pretty bright pink shade, I like this for a daytime look when I want some colour on the lips but not a bold lipstick. Then the other shade is Glowing Peach, this is quite a sheer gloss and looks really lovely over a nude lipstick. Also another lip product from MaxFactor is this Colour Intensifying Lip Balm in shade Sumptuous Candy, it's a real girly pink colour. Honestly I don't find this lip balm moisturising enough to be used as a lip balm but I love the sheer natural colour that it gives to my lips.

So those are my favourite products from MaxFactor, have you tried any of these items? What do you think of them?

  2. I love Max Factor :) I've been using the Masterpiece mascara for years, and the Facefinity primer is basically what converted me to primers!
